So... I Made a Half/Half Deal And Here I Am
I bought a return auction of several Lego sets. I paid about $250 for a Technics Motorcycle, a Star Wars Y-Wing Fighter, a boxful of Minion Advent sets and a Death Star. The advent sets are brand new and the motorcycle was complete. The Death Star looks complete, but I don't know yet. The Y-Wing is what brought me here.
When I went to open the packages, I found that they weren't sealed but rather taped back shut. Upon further inspection, I found that the pieces didn't even go with this model! The sorry so-and-so had bought the model, took it home, swapped the Y-Wing parts out for some dirty pieces and returned it as "missing pieces." Can you believe that?
I was hoping that I could at least build something out of the pieces, but I had no idea how to figure it out. After I signed up here, I found out about Rebrickable. After spending several hours sorting and cataloging the parts - many of which were Mega Bloks and other generic pieces - come to find out, I don't have enough pieces to build anything!
I used to be really into Lego when I was a kid - I got a new set every holiday - and I have recently gotten back into it with the Saturn V - the most beautiful rocket ever - but the kits are just so dang expensive! Anyway... looking forward to spending some time here with y'all!
